ethnic schoolgirl?

I did my hair cutting video last night!  I am trying to work out the tech stuff right now.  The video is digital and done with my cannon so I am not sure how I upload it but I am working on it.  In the mean time, these are my pics from sunset last night!  I was so impressed by the dark sky and the bright warm light that just peaked over the mountains right before it dipped below them!  I got this dress at the Goodwill last Saturday and nearly peed my pants when I did!  (literally, there are no bathrooms at my Goodwill) but was able to hold it in for a few more minutes while I checked out!  I also found this little knitted vintage beret at an antique store later that day!  It was a pretty lucky day!  I just want to wear this hat with everything now! Anyhoo, back to the matter at hand. The hair cutting video. Should be up shortly. Gonna work really hard.  Please don't laugh too hard at me if you watch it.  or just don't tell me that you did if it was in a mean spirited way.

Dress: thrifted vintage
Blazer: thrifted vintage
Lazer: Just kidding
Hat: vintage
Socks: J. Crew (and shrinking! the darn things!)
Shoes: vintage thrifted

Wow. The sky is falling! I love the broody lighting, it is a hard one to capture when you are wary of your camera getting wet ;-)

Looking forwards to your hair cutting video.. I am such a div, can't even cut my own fringe without major disasters ;-)

the light in your photos is gorgeous! so are you :) that is a great dress and i love the colors in it. i have shrinking socks too. it makes me so mad!!! it's hard enough to find knee socks that make it over my INCREDIBLY LARGE CALVES (sorry to yell at you but really they are big). so i hear ya on that. and you make me so jealous with all your wonderful hats. i look terrible in them. but you don't, you look amazing!

Ah the title matches so good! And the scene is really beautiful... And the dress is very very pretty on you!!! I can't wait for the video! Yay!!

I cut my own hair occasionally, and it looks sort of similar to yours, so I am curious to see what your technique is. Also, I'm eager to learn how to do it properly as I pretty much just pick pieces and use a literal razor to chop some off here and there, hah. I know, I'm not the most professional of people.

I used to trim my bangs....then I really took a good look at them one day and decided it was probably best to grow them out lol

That sky is incredible! It almost looks like there's a little portal in the sky. Maybe I just have the show "Sliders" in my head! :) You look so great in this outfit, that dress is such a find!

ohhh...love the outfit and love the photos - perfect combo. that dress is love.

also, I just watched your hair cutting video and cannot wait to have long hair like yours (i'm working on it!)

Also, I know you get Maggie Gyllenhaal alot but I've been watching the NBC show Parenthood online and you totally remind me of Erika Christensen when you talk/facial expressions.

Great Goodwill find.

I've had a bathroom scare at a secondhand shop before. The "oh my gosh, have to pee, no bathroom in sight, oh no, what am I going to do?!" It always hits me at the most convenient times.
